On July 29th, I will be running in the San Francisco Marathon to raise awareness of Operation Access (OA) and to show firsthand what can happen when people come together to help others. My story was recently featured in the Sonoma Index-Tribune.
After a year of pain and unemployment, OA volunteers repaired my hernia and Achilles tendon. I am now back to work and back to running, dedicating this race to Drs. Richard Bland and Thomas Fitzgerald and all of the OA volunteers who helped get me back on my feet.
By running in this marathon, I am fulfilling one of my lifelong dreams, and I owe it to the gracious OA volunteers for helping to make this possible.
Would you please consider sponsoring me in this race? It is tax-deductible, with all proceeds going to Operation Access, so more people like me can get the care they need to be healthy and productive.
I would also love it if you would join me in the race (also a 5K option), whether as a runner, walker, or cheering from the sidelines. OA will have an official cheer station at Mile 23 at Mariposa and Pennsylvania from 7AM until noon, so please stop by and help cheer on all the runners!
